When you weren't invited to a party for your friends birthday
But it's a public event on Facebook so you go anyway

You show up to the house you go up to your friend and say happy birthday dude
He gives you a puzzled look and says he wasn't expecting you.

To try to soften blow you tell him a joke you heard about brain cancer
He says I just found out I've got that, and as you try to think of how to answer...

There's an awkward silence tension in the air
Like when your boob falls out of your shirt and everyone starts to stare
Or when you're excited about your new job at Starbucks but no one really cares
.... That was one right there...

When you're on a date at your favorite restaurant with a cool new gal
And you're seated next to your ex on a date with your best pal

As your steak gets to the table you start to eat like a barbarian
Your date just sits there speechless staring cause she's a vegetarian

When you go for the kiss at the end of the night and you get that cheek
What's that feeling in the two of you causing neither of you to speak

Another awkward silence like when you're caught doing a fake accent
Like when you ask someone when the baby's due and she tells you she's not pregnant
Or when you're alone with your mom and have a very visible pants tent
....That was another one

When a white guy uses the n word to refer to to his white friend near a black guy
Or when parents walk in on you giving yourself a good time
When you offer some change to a scruffy guy cause your feeling generous and he looks back at you angrily and tells you he's not homeless

Rejected public proposals bad speeches bringing up religion
Or during mitosis when only one part of the cell really wants division
When you're out with your friend who starts to lament his lack of circumcision
When you say good bye to someone then you both walk in the same direction

Awkward silence uncomfortable and silent
Like when you find out from your parents that you really were an accident
Or when you ask a girl for her number and she tells you she's a lesbian
When you're about to go all the way but first you gotta talk about your infection
Or when you start to lead up to a really high note you cannot hit
And you decide not to go for it at the very last...
